WASHINGTON, D.C. — Today, Senate Majority PAC is launching a new television ad in Georgia keeping the pressure on Sen. David Perdue’s stock trading scandal during the COVID-19 pandemic that has been called a “gross abuse of power” by the Savannah Morning News

While the U.S. Senate received a private briefing on the coronavirusDavid Perdue proceeded to buy stock in a company that sells masks and glovesalong with stock in a vaccine manufacturer. While Sen. Perdue was looking out for himself and downplaying the pandemic, Georgia’s workforce became one of the hardest hit by COVID-19 job loss.  

The ad is part of SMP’s previously announced $7.2 million statewide reservation.

“David Perdue is as sleazy as it gets and Georgians deserve to know who he’s fighting for in Washington: himself,” said Senate Majority PAC spokesperson Matt Corridoni. “While Georgians got sick, lost their jobs, and worried about their businesses, millionaire Senator David Perdue was using his official role to enrich himself. The more Georgians learn about David Perdue’s self-dealing ways, the more vulnerable he becomes heading into November.”
